Intro:
======

EmptyQ is an application that will empty your mail queue. 
Which is usually located at /usr/spool/mqueue. Please note that
you need to be "connected" to your internet service provider
in order for the mail to be sent. (Your ppp link needs to be active.)

EmptyQ simply sends a /usr/lib/sendmail -q command. Which can
be also done in a terminal shell.

The reason I made this program is that several non-technical
people use my computer. This program makes it easy for them
to make sure that thier e-mail was sent instantly, once they log on 
to the ISP.

This OpenStep Version was greatly fixed up and simplified 
compared to Version 1.0 running on NEXTSTEP. As you can see
from the source code, the program itself is ONLY 4 lines of code!!!
Special thanks to Samy Toutai for his help.

I hope that this program will be useful for other people out there in 
NEXTSTEP/OpenStep land.
